Yukon

Yukon is my first dog (as an adult) and I couldn’t have asked for a more special buddy. I adopted him from the local Humane Society in March of 2007 as an 8 month old gangly, goofy pup and he’s been my heart dog ever since. He might be just a plain black dog but he is bursting with personality and is just plain fun. He lives for frisbee, food and swimming!

Mira

Mira is a nutty little Australian Shepherd that spent the first couple years of her life locked in a barn stall. I guess her original family didn’t research the breed as they locked her up because she was herding the neighbor’s horses (really, who’d have thunk it – a herding dog…herding). I adopted her in December of 2007 – she was a shell of a dog, scared of a lot of things. She still has a number of hangups but she’s now an insanely hyper dog, full of personality and impossible to keep up with. She keeps us all very busy, life would be quite dull without her! She has an intense obsession with all things round and can be found obsessively herding all of us around the house.

Me

Oh gosh, now for me…I’m a stubborn independent girl (err…woman, I guess I am 39) raised in rural Michigan. By day I’m a lab nerd, working in a mid-size hospital – as a  Microbiologist. By night (and weekend and time off), I’m a photography loving, motorcycling riding, outdoor junky with perpetually itchy feet.

I’ve come to terms with spiders in my environment and while I don’t want to cuddle them, I do find them fascinating and I tolerate them in the house (provided they don’t invade my space). I think this one may have been slightly squashed by the dogs but it was still alive.  I’ve never seen one like it and can’t figure it out.  Anyone have any ideas?  The pictures aren’t great because while it didn’t look like it was in any shape to attack me, it was a risk I wasn’t willing to take 😂 #spider #michigan #spidersofmichigan #spideridentification Anyone ever push themselves to the brink of madness taking part in an activity?  I’m on my third season of trying to have some success while out rabbit hunting and still nada!  Ive dug briars out of knuckles and today out of my face (lip and chin). I’ve walked miles and miles through swamps, briars, cattails and brush with an air rifle, a .22 and most recently my grandpa’s shotgun.  I drive by stands of autumn olives, low pines and grassy fencerows and think about how many rabbits I’d be able kick up if given an opportunity.  I know someday I’ll make things happen and bring my first cottontail home for dinner but until then, I’ll relish in the blood, sore legs and constant frustration.

#hunting #rabbithunting #cottontail #michigan #publiclandowner #publiclandhunting So, I’m as bad at rabbit hunting as I am at duck hunting!  It was scary windy out today but I had the day off and I needed to get out in the woods and clear my head!  One rabbit bolted from the same spot as the other day, I almost stepped on the other one. Does anyone else hate hearing themselves on video 😂😂😂 #rabbithunting #publiclandowner #publiclandhunting #michigan Still getting some flyers and still tend to hit right of where I’m aiming but getting better.  I went to the archery store today and asked a million questions, I was handed a free range pass and told to come back on Monday to have their traditional guy help me get things more squared away. #recurvearchery #recurve #archery #tradbow #traditionalarchery
